On December 18, 2015, the Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT family lost a leader, mentor and friend with the passing of company founder, Jack Hansen, Sr.
Jack’s impressive career spanned many decades, and his accomplishments speak for themselves. In his nearly 57 years at the helm of Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT, he sowed the seeds of hard work, integrity and entrepreneurship that enabled Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT to flourish and grow into a strong and dynamic global business.
Yet, Jack is remembered not just for his professional legacy. He was also widely regarded as a mentor and a friend whose empathy and warmth touched everyone he met. Many of the people he worked with over the years became dear friends.
His vision and leadership have left an indelible imprint on the lives of many people. Jack never wavered in his passion and determination to build his business and spread the word of God. Though his presence is irreplaceable, we rejoice in the knowledge that he now enjoys every day in his Heavenly home.
Jack Hansen, founder of Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT, was raised on a ranch in the western Nebraska sandhills. Jack’s passion for agriculture and ag producers was kindled as a young boy working in his father’s creamery. Jack’s job was to take the butter fat content when the farmers brought in their cream and pay them accordingly.
Jack served in the Navy from 1952 to 1957 as an aerial photographer, flying from the deck of the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Hancock off the coast of Korea during the Korean War. After returning from the service, he graduated from the University of Nebraska with a bachelor’s degree in business administration.
Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT was established on September 1, 1959. From the start, Jack built the business on the foundation of good business ethics, honesty, and integrity—principles that continue to guide the company today.
As the company prospered and grew, several of Jack’s children—Eric, Katrina, Jack Jr., and Kirk—joined the business. In 1966, the company became a member of an organization called NPAworldwide and is now one of the longest-tenured NPAworldwide owner-members.
Through both the prosperous and the challenging years, Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT has made it their mission to consistently provide high-quality candidates to some of the leading employers in the ag industry. Jack felt there was always “one more question” that could be asked to find the ideal fit for both candidate and company. We still strive to ask that question today.
As a result, we have many candidates who return to us to help them take the next step in their career and employers who come back to us to help them with their hiring needs—the highest compliment that can be paid in our profession.
Hansen Agri-PLACEMENT continues to evolve and stay abreast of the latest technology in order to best serve individuals looking for their next position and employers looking for their next quality employee.
